I  made this slow cooker recipe for my son's 4th grade class.   I set up a Hot Chocolate Bar which was really fun: different flavors of marshmallows, whip cream, choc shavings, chopped candy canes, and candy canes to stir with! :)  I made this recipe X 4 to serve the 28 kids in his class, and it fit in my large crockpot.

Triple Hot Chocolate Slow Cooker recipe

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened Dagoba cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups milk, divided
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
1 (1 ounce) square bittersweet Ghiradelli
1 (1 ounce) square Ghiradelli white chocolate
3/4 cup whipped cream
6 teaspoons mini chocolate chips or shaved bittersweet chocolate

Combine sugar, cocoa, salt and 1/2 cup milk in medium bowl. Beat until smooth. Pour into crock pot. Add remaining milk and vanilla extract. Cover and cook on LOW for 2 hours.

Add cream. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 minutes.

Stir in bittersweet and white chocolates. Pour hot chocolate into 6 coffee cups. Top each with 2 tablespoons whipped cream and 1 teaspoon chocolate chips.  (or like I said above, set out all kinds of toppings, and flavors of marshmallows, and you have a guaranteed party :)

Makes 6 servings.
